For Your Inspiration #46


Today I'm bringing you a card made for For Your Inspiration challenge #46.
I used Mama Elephant Basic Borders, and Simon Says Stamp Flower Friend. Colours are Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, and PTI Soft Stone.

The photo is of a beautiful aspen forest. I couldn't resist using the lines and the colours in this photograph. They're irresistible!
The rest of the design team have done their usual wonderful work. I'm sure they'd love to have you over for a visit.


Okay, I have to admit, I actually closed the windows in the house today. It was slightly chilly. When we got home tonight, I made the decision that Winter may just be approaching and I should start keeping what little warmth we have inside the house. For those of you who don't know Brisbane, we have very mild Winters. Summer is really hot and really humid, but Winter tends to be quite nice. BUT, it does get cold overnight. Brisbane houses have generally not been built for the cold, and most of us have no heating, sigh! So when the temp goes down near or below 0c overnight, it really does feel cold. It's not that cold now. I think it's probably somewhere around 16c, but a few days ago it was a LOT warmer... and now it's grey, overcast and rainy. That's probably why I'm a bit grumpy about the temperature, Brisbane has blue skies and zero rain in the cold months, I don't know where this rain has come from, LOL!

Thanks for visiting me!

Beautiful card and your take on the Aspen Forest is perfect. As you are closing windows I am finally opening mine again.

Such a beautiful take on that photo, Michelle!

I think I may need to move to Brisbane - sounds like my kind of weather - I would LOVE even one mild winter like yours, and hot, humid days don't bother me. Can't imagine not having any heat - stay warm!

Very pretty card Michelle!

We just starting opening windows here. Love the breezes going through the house. We had a very long and cold winter, so I'm very ready for Spring here!
